Belfast prepares for National Lottery film screenings

Belfast will be joining in the National Lottery’s 10th birthday celebrations this Sunday by launching a week of free cinema screenings throughout the province.
The Cinemobile, Ireland’s unique mobile cinema, which is part-funded by the Lottery, will be parked outside Belfast City Hall on Sunday September 19, giving the general public the chance to watch one of Northern Ireland’s own movies free-of-charge.
The schedule for the day will consist of a morning, afternoon and an evening screening of National Lottery funded Northern Irish films, each aimed at a different audience. Films include 'The Honeymooners' and 'Freeze Frame', and the morning session, which is aimed at a younger audience, will round off with animation and makeup workshops.
Following this, from Monday through to Friday, the Cinemobile will tour Northern Ireland also offering the new Disney movie 'Home On The Range' to the general public throughout the country in Castlewellan, Crossmaglen, Draperstown, Ballygawley, and Lisnaskea.
The Touring Cinema is one of a number of events taking place to celebrate the 10th year of the National Lottery and highlight the impact it has had on the lives of people in Northern Ireland. Since it began, almost £500 million National Lottery money has been awarded to good causes in Northern Ireland alone.
The events, which include fun days, open days, walks, a circus skills competition and a cycle, will culminate in the first ever National Lottery Day, Saturday November 6, when special celebrations will take place simultaneously in Belfast, Cardiff, Glasgow and London.
To apply for tickets to the Belfast launch event screenings please contact Joanne O’Connell at the NIFTC on 028 90 232444 or email
